The National Screen Institute’s new alumni podcast, The Hats We Wear, features artists and leaders from the film and television industries as they discuss their career highs and lows – and how life experiences have shaped their perspectives as people and storytellers. Hosted by National Screen Institute communications intern Emily Palmer, this podcast not only covers topics like film and television – but also family, injustices and the road to reaching one’s dreams

The Hats We Wear is released to coincide with the National Screen Institute’s annual fundraising campaign which showcases the stories of the alumni community. Episodes will be published weekly throughout November and December providing a glimpse into the lives of the storytellers supported by the work of the National Screen Institute.

The National Screen Institute is calling on you to make an ongoing donation in support of the storytelling community by committing to becoming a monthly donor for as little as $5 per month.
